    Looks fine to me, did it come with a box? most of these crosses came in nice issue boxes.

    Thanks guys!

    I just bought that one from a Brazilian dealer.

    And by the way, i think that the lot found is called 'Deschler'.

    Very nice crosses you guys. That presentation box is in great shape Ade. I wonder if the mothers wore these out in public like regular jewelry? It would really be something to see a period photo with a lady wearing one of these. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Jay, yes these were most certainly worn in public. Mostly these were in the form of the miniature. I will show one here from my collection, in bronze form.

    Members of the HJ were required to salute any lady on the street who wore the Mothers Cross.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Great pictures Ade! I'm sure the mothers would be proud to wear them and show they were doing their part for the fatherland. I love the info on HJ, that's history you just don't hear about very often. Not only was the TR extremely advanced in the technical field, they were also way ahead of their time in marketing, plus they had really cool uniforms. Thanks for the photos of your nice minature cross, and the mother wearing hers.

    Jay
